No Bake Vegan Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding Cake Recipe (Refined Sugar Free) | Delia.v Life
I'm sure many of you are familiar with Chia seeds by now. We love them because they're high in healthy fats and very beneficial for your health. Chia seeds are common in breakfast bowls and smoothies but in cakes? Well why not!
We wanted to see if Chia seeds could be incorporated beyond the breakfast bowls and into our favourite desserts. So we created this Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding cake, which is inspired by Chia seed puddings and pumpkin pies, and we're glad we did! The result is a rich, creamy and lightly-spiced cake that tastes absolutely amazing. This cake is refined sugar free and you also don't need to bake it! We topped it off with our favourite cashew icing which we used in our Dark Chocolate Pound Cake Recipe.
Without further ado, here's the recipe!
Biscuit base: 110g Gingersnap cookies/ Digestive biscuits 35g Melted coconut oil/ Margarine Filling: 135g Cooked pumpkin 40g Coconut sugar 185g Coconut milk 300g Silken tofu 1 tsp Ground cinnamon/ Pumpkin spice mix 1.5 tsp Agar powder 1 tsp Vanilla extract 40g Chia seeds Cashew icing for decoration Roasted pumpkin seeds for decoration Vegan honey/ Maple syrup for decoration
Instructions: 1. Pulse the cookies in a food processor until powdery. 2. Add in melted coconut oil and continue to pulse until a sandy texture forms. 3. Press mixture into a 6 inch baking tin lined with baking paper. Then refrigerate it while you make the filling. 4. To make the filling, add all filling ingredients, EXCEPT the chia seeds into the food processor and process until smooth. 5. Pour the mixture into a saucepan and add in the chia seeds. Whisk until well combined. 6. Heat the saucepan on medium heat until it just begin to boil. 7. Remove from heat and immediately pour the hot mixture into the cake tin. 8. Let the cake cool to room temperature then chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. 9. Decorate with frosting, pumpkin seeds and vegan honey if desired.
